Endododontics, more commonly called root canal treatment, is a dentistry specialty dealing with tooth pulp (the center of a tooth made of living cells and tissue) abnormalities and issues surrounding the root of a tooth. The causes, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of such diseased or injured teeth can now readily be taken care of with the help of endodontics, whereas in the past once a tooth was diseased or damaged it was usually pulled.
The following symptoms may signify a need for a root canal:
Tooth decay is one of the most common of all disorders, second only to the common cold. It usually occurs in children and young adults but can affect any person. It is a common cause of tooth loss in younger people. Most cavities are discovered in the early stages during routine checkups. The surface of the tooth may be soft when probed with a sharp instrument. Pain may not be present until the advanced stages of tooth decay. Dental x-rays may show some cavities before they are visible to the eye.
Treatment can help prevent tooth damage from leading to cavities.
Dental Treatment may involve:
Teeth cleaning is part of oral hygiene and involves the removal of dental plaque from teeth with the intention of preventing cavities (dental caries), gingivitis, and periodontal disease. People routinely clean their own teeth by brushing and interdental cleaning, and dental hygienists can remove hardened deposits (tartar) not removed by routine cleaning. Those with dentures and natural teeth may supplement their cleaning with a denture cleaner.
A crown is a type of dental restoration which completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant. Crowns are often needed when a large cavity threatens the ongoing health of a tooth. Crowns can be made from many materials such as porcelain, metal cast, gold and zirconia, Crowns are often used to improve the strength or appearance of teeth.
– Full Metal / Gold Crowns:
Not so often used in this days due to the lack of a cosmetic view. This crowns are usually recommended by the dentist when the patient presents a occlusal trauma or there is a lack of space between top and bottom tooth in order to fit the crown.
– Porcelain Fused to a Metal Cast:
This is the most common crown used on dentistry. By having porcelain fused to a metal cast you acquire a durable and fair cosmetic crown in result.
– Full Porcelain Crowns:
The e-max crowns. This are commonly used on cosmetic dentistry in areas where the biting strength is less, by example, front teeth going from canine to canine. Benefits of this crown are the light weight that they offer, and the translucency of the natural color of your dentin, providing a more natural look.
– Porcelain Fused to a Zirconia Crown:
We could call this the “Rolls Royce” of cosmetic crowns. Zirconia is a white color metal which, used as a cast, provides a far better appearance and color, with the same strength and durability as a metal cast. By using this material, we can also offer a durable answer to patients that might be allergic to the metal alloy used on common metal or metal/porcelain crowns.
Periodontal pathology, or periodontal diseases, are a group of diseases which affects one or more of the periodontal tissues (i.e. alveolar bone, periodontal ligament, cementum and gingiva). While many different diseases affect these tooth-supporting structures, by far the most common of these are plaque-induced inflammatory conditions, which are considered as gingivitis and periodontitis.
The treatment of periodontal disease begins with the removal of sub-gingival calculus (tartar) and biofilm deposits. A dental hygienist procedure called scaling and root planing is the common first step in addressing periodontal problems, which seeks to remove calculus by mechanically scraping it from tooth surfaces.
What are dental sealants? Dental sealants are thin plastic coatings that are applied to the grooves on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth to protect them from tooth decay. Most tooth decay in children and teens occurs on these surfaces. Sealants protect the chewing surfaces from tooth decay by keeping germs and food particles out of these grooves.
A dental implant (also known as an endosseous implant or fixture) is a surgical component that interfaces with the bone of the jaw or skull to support a dental prosthesis such as a crown, bridge, denture, facial prosthesis or to act as an orthodontic anchor.
The basis for modern dental implants is a biologic process called osseointegration where materials, such as titanium, form an intimate bond to bone. The implant fixture is first placed, so that it is likely to osseointegrate, then a dental prosthetic is added. A variable amount of healing time is required for osseointegration before either the dental prosthetic (a tooth, bridge or denture) is attached to the implant or an abutment is placed which will hold a dental prosthetic.
A wisdom tooth is extracted to correct an actual problem or to prevent problems that may come up in the future. Some of the problems that can occur when wisdom teeth come in are:
Is a surgical procedure which aims to increase the amount of bone in the posterior maxilla (upper jaw bone), in the area of premolar and molar teeth, When a natural tooth is lost, whether through dental decay, periodontal disease or dental trauma, the alveolar process begins to remodel.
The edentulous (toothless) area is termed a ridge, which over time usually loses both height and width. Furthermore, the level of the floor of the maxillary sinus gradually becomes lower.
Overall, this leads to a loss of volume of bone which is available for implantation of dental implants, The goal of the sinus lift is to graft extra bone into the maxillary sinus, so more bone is available to support a dental implant.
When your jawbone isn’t thick enough or is too soft, you may need bone grafting before you can have dental implant surgery. That’s because the powerful chewing action of your mouth exerts great pressure on your bone, and if it can’t support the implant, the surgery likely would fail. A bone graft can create a more solid base for the implant.
A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. Two types of dentures are available — complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain.
Dental veneers (sometimes called porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates) are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve your appearance. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, size, or length, veneers are routinely used to fix:
Orthodontia is the specialty of dentistry that is concerned with the treatment of improper bites and crooked teeth. Orthodontic treatment can help fix the patient’s teeth and set them in the right place. Orthodontists work on reconstructing the entire face rather than focusing only on teeth. After a course of active orthodontic treatment, patients will typically wear retainers (orthodontic devices), which help to maintain the teeth in their improved positions while surrounding bone reforms around them.
